School Nature Walk Guides

Share nature with children! On weekday mornings in the spring and fall, volunteer guides lead nature discovery activities, tell stories, and play games with small groups of K-6th graders on school nature walks in the Whilamut Natural Area of Alton Baker Park.

No experience is necessary. Our free training covers everything from local natural history to nature-themed storytelling to outdoor teaching techniques. Guides commit to leading one walk per week (two-three hours) for one season at a time.

Training happens in April and September (for spring and fall seasons). See Nearby Nature Guide Training Overview to learn more about this fall’s program and please fill out a Volunteer Questionnaire today to let us know you’re interested. We will contact you soon to set up an interview/sign you up for trainings. Please email info@nearbynature.org if you have questions!
